Huntington, West Va. Establishes Vision for Three ‘Post-Industrial’ Properties

Plans for how the city of Huntington can transform three post-industrial brownfield properties into usable and productive space were unveiled to the public in late February.

The proposed plans include the addition of a baseball field, residential units, a hotel and space for offices and commercial development.

These plans are the culmination of a year-long community planning process that has involved interactive workshops and other public outreach initiatives to collect input from residents, which has been the first step in the city's Brownfields Planning and Redevelopment Project.

Through the use of grant funds from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the city enlisted the expertise of the firm that specializes in brownfield redevelopment plans in order to explore the potential for these properties.

At the public forum it was noted now important it was to identify how the new development can be woven into the existing area—serving as a guide for developers.

The proposed plan breaks the area into four development zones: University Park, Sport Complex Expansion, Foundry Center and Polymer Tech Center.
